It's a boolean parameter like "use chroot".

That configuration looks fine. If it doesn't work, you could debug the
daemon and see what happens when the "lp_supplementary_groups" check in
clientserver.c is reached. But now that Wayne has added a somewhat

http://rsync.samba.org/download.html ), you might want to just use that
instead of my patch.
